Crows Dunk

I got a sinking feeling when the local crows stopped commuting from Duvall and set up housekeeping in the back yard hemlock. The birds have turned out to be good and useful neighbors who appear to have driven out several invasive species. I haven’t seen an English sparrow or starling in years. The in-house field scientist swears he saw a crow hazing a grey squirrel into the path of an oncoming vehicle. He has also observed crows soaking dry crusts in residential gutters.
